The BASH shell will complain that a command cannot be found if the file with the given name does not exist in a directory listed in the $PATH environment variable.

You can see the current search path with
echo $PATH
and add a directory to it with
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/sbin/
I think setenforce lives in /usr/sbin/ which is on the root user's path by default but not on the path of regular users.

Another way around this would be to give the full path:
/usr/sbin/setenforce 0
You can find out where setenforce is on your system using
locate setenforce

You need to be root when you run that command.
